Speaking at The Learning Annex was a great experience. So many people, especially women of all ages, have reached out repeatedly to ask me how I started my first business and how I have achieved all that I have. View my entire class on love, marriage, business and how to have it all here!
It was great to interact with the audience. I surprised everyone with my wit and made them laugh. Everyone walked away learning something from my talk. It was good to know that by hearing my story it could help someone in their career path. I always tell my daughter, "Avery, the number one rule of being successful is you MUST LOVE what you do."
Heather's a successful business woman mother and wife. I don't believe Reid was correct when he said he thought Heather was jealous of me. I think perhaps she may be insecure. There are many people in this world who are the beautiful, rich, smart and/or successful -- but they are insecure.

Being honest and upfront is not always the best way to handle things? OMG!?! Whatever good qualities you showed in other seasons, because you have some, are completely missing in this season. I think you are simply not in your comfort zone with the three new women, whatever their strengths or weaknesses. And yours and LuAnn's relationship, (not!) surely isn't comfortable. All I can say is I am embarrassed for you. You fell apart because Heather doesn't want to be your "friend?" And you're not insecure? Doesn't anybody advise you or do they know it won't help...I don't know, but it is really hard to watch.
I was surprised how Romona reacted to Aviva's prosthesis. Aviva handled it well but must of been somewhat annoyed that Heather and Romona both brought more attention to her. Typically you let the person who has such devices select when, where,and how to introduce or discuss it.If Romona had quesions, she could ask when they were alone.
Of course Romona feels she is perfect so she won't get it.
Ramona lost points with me... it was very hurtful to see how she reacted towards Aviva's prostetic leg. My husband lost his left arm 6 yrs ago and it is a hard thing to go thru.. and as for Heather goes, you are just hating on her because she is smart, beautiful and very successful and she has a great SMILE! you need to stop the botox on your eyes, you look scary.
My husband and I saw the Aviva shoe shopping episode, and let me tell you i did not appreciate your behavior and i really felt bad for Aviva. 6 yrs ago my husband lost his left arm at his place of employment, we are still struggling with this. He now has several arm prostetics but do not look nothing like an arm. It hurts me when my husband gets the "Ramona" treatment. On a positive note i thank god that we have friends and family who have shown us love, support and respect given the situation. Our lives were changed 6 yrs ago, I thank God everyday for still having a husband, a friend, a father however, it has not been an easy road for us we still manage to stick together thru the good times and the bad times. He will never be the same, our lives will never be the same but we still have each other. God bless and good luck to you and your family, may you continue to be successful and enjoy your pinot..... while we watch!
Wow, you're behavior in this last episode was terrible! I'm not surprised you haven't posted your blog. I hope you have the sense enough to be embarrassed about how you acted.
Being honest and upfront is not always the best way to handle things. It shows immaturity when you run your mouth with no regard to anyone's feelings. You seem to justify it as being a virtue, and, trust me, it's not. Being a successful business woman is one thing, but being a successful human being in the real world is another. You need to separate the two, and realize that what you say can hurt others. Is it really worth it? Remember-God gave you two ears and one mouth for a reason! And FYI, I am NOT one of your haters. I like you alot, but your mouth is getting ahead of you!
I have been a fan of all the RHW shows since the very beginning. I get excited to see them but this season of RHONY is so hard for me to watch, it sits on my tivo and I don't even know if I want to watch anymore. Ramona you are so hard to watch anymore and I don't like any of the new girls and Luann is boring. Probably will stop watching NY.
OMG...Heather must be paying you all to post on her behalf. That woman is a snob and Ramona called her on it. Ramona acted mature and called her out as a phony. The dumb idiot followed Ramona around like a puppy dog trying to get a treat. And Ramona asked her several times to drop it...this is not the time or place. Heather has no respect or class! I felt sorry for both husbands they didn't know how to resolve it. Mario should have stepped in and told Heather to leave his wife alone, didn't you do enough by not inviting her when you knew it would hurt her feelings. But men don't get emotional like women. He probably advised Ramona to ignore Heather and when she tried she got stalked. Heather needs to GO! She is to weird for me to watch!
Boring. You avoided this episode and your blog response more than you avoided Heather at The Empire Room. Address your actions and words from this weeks show or don't bother writing this blog. All you said was basically buy my stuff and look at my site.
Heather Heather Heather that is all you talk about. Please try to understand her feelings. You are NOT listening to her.
I applauded Bravo for not asking Kelly, Cindy, Jill, and Alex back and cursed them for forgetting to exclude Luann and Ramona; seriously Bravo, we may just be the real real housewives of America but we are far too intelligent to enjoy the nonsense these two dish out.
I am so bored with Romona's tantrums and rude, immature behavior, turn the page to someone else.
Everyone else is pretty much saying what I thought....Ramona is really acting very rudely toward people.....Heather is just attempting to handle her as anyone with 'manners' would....by simply being courteous...not having to call her out and say hey - don't like you.....as you can see the more subtle ways can speak volumes.....and Ramona has gotten the message and is bothered by it. Unless Ramona changes her behavior - she will continue to push people away.
Ramona I'm always "trying" my best to understand where you're coming from but I never get it.. there's some evidence that you're not a mean hearted person but also much evidence that you are.. which is it? I think you react so much that it's hard to tell if you're coming from a good place or not. That's the problem with being so impulsive.. no one really gets you for who you want them to get you for.
Ramona, saying what others may be thinking but won't say is NOT a virtue, it's a side effect of a serious case of immaturity. There's a reason others keep certain things to themselves. Learn to edit yourself.
I dont understand why you act so immature. You are a successful business woman, you accuse Heather of talking behind your back but that's all that you have been doing. Talking about Heather, you cant let it go. What's wrong with you. Let it go!!!!
Ramona, you say Heather talks too much, then you dont let her defend herself at all when you call her mean and phony!! Whats up with that? Do you talk so much that when anyone else tries to talk their voice sounds uncomfortable to the point of running off??!
Romona you need to get a book on proper etiquette and actually read it. Saying every thing that you think is not called constructive criticism but can have consequences. Here is come constructive critism act your age and get on some meds.
baxterduey LOL I have to agree with you 100%. I've seen 12 year olds act more maturely and responsibly than Ramona. Look up the words childish or immature in the dictionary and you'll likely see a photo of Ramona Singer.
Ramona started a fight and then ran off like a scared child when the adult in the situation was willing to address the issue. Ramona continues to put herself in situations which make her look unbalanced.
oh Ramona! seriously? you are incredibly immature & just downright rude. Heather has done nothing but try her best to get along with you, & you just can't help yourself from making little digs & snide comments. i think you're hilarious for thinking Heather's jealous of you or that she's insecure. she seems very secure in her business, relationship, & life. she's beautiful, successful, & smart. you have nothing she needs to envy you for. you have the potential to be all the things she is, but you've gotta put a filter on that rude mouth of yours. all you do is hurt people & tear others down. it's hard to watch.
@rsmith13 What? Heather is rude and FAKE. She has not tried at all to get along with Ramona. The fact is Heather is jealous and insecure.
@rsmith13 - agreed. Ramona is threatened by Heather and turns it around and claims insecurity and jealousy. Ramona is unreal.
I don't understand how Heather not inviting you is 'mean'. She doesn't LIKE YOU. So what! You don't like her, either, so I don't get why you're so upset. This show has gone to your head and you aren't all that. In fact, you're the most annoying on all the shows combined, you ARE Jill! You are the insecure one... I think all of the new girls, INCLUDING HEATHER, are fantastic & a breath of fresh air.... You need help, sweetie, I hope you get it.....
ramona, i think you were spot on when you said heather's not jealous of you, just threatened. you do see right through her fake bs and call her on it. good for you. stop worrying about her and be yourself. you are wonderful. you do have to be more sensitive with aviva though. you treat her like some circus freak, so surprised she could go to the beach or swim. treat her like a real person and stop hurting her feelings. that was really insensitive of you and i felt badly for aviva.
judyann325 I think just the opposite as far as Ramona and Heather. If anything, Heather has called Ramona out on her bs. They didn't start off well at Ramona's house party when she and Mario kept explaining to Heather that she talked too much. Really? How rude was that? I don't blame Heather for being turned off. I agree with you totally about Aviva though. That was somewhat insensitive.
judyann325 what show are you watching, Heather is anything but jealous of Ramona, actually i get the feeling Ramona is intimidated by heather.
My first impression you Ramona is that you are too much like Cathy Lee Gifford. You think you are better than anyone else and do your best to insult anyone you feel threatened by. Please prove the viewers wrong........
Love to watch you dear Ramona. I dvr the show so I can fast forward through boring Heather, Aviva and Carole........~yawn~. If I want to watch children I will turn to Super Nanny or boring date I will turn to 'Miss Advised' which I don't
The Golden Rule and The Law of Reciprocity are worth living by Ramona. To have and KEEP a friend, you MUST BE ONE. That means you have to earn that friendship, you can't demand it. Be courteous and respectful, even if you may not agree with the other person. I feel as if you've gotten even more outrageous this year, a lot more immature, petty and demanding, almost as if Bravo firing the others and keeping you has gone to your head. Ramona, please be humble, REALLY humble. And if a friendship doesn't work, then either just stay cordial acquaintances, or sincerely move on. Maybe later on, a friendship can develop. but not if you burn bridges because the outcome is not what you want or expect. When you try to talk to someone like Heather then you apologize, please do it sincerely. If you're doing it to get an invitation, or whatever your agenda is, then if you don't hear what you want to hear as her response, don't act like a belligerent child.Screaming at Sonja, demanding that she not go to London out of loyalty to you, is NOT fair to her. Acting like a 5 year-old and throwing a tantrum at her event, and then acting so childish when shopping with Aviva...those behaviors stop being cute at age 4, because even at age 5, when a child goes to kindergarten, he or she will find out that those behaviors don't really win friends. I hope you now know how Jill felt when you purposely excluded her at your cooking party during season 1 or 2, made up a lie, and didn't apologize to her.. You can't make up rules that only apply to others and not yourself. Btw, how do you know that just because Ramona thinks and says something, then it is automatically what EVERYONE is thinking? Get off that high horse, or you might keep hitting your head. You can be assertive and honest without being obnoxious, demanding and self-entitled. The truth is, many do NOT agree with what and how you say things. When you offend others, please recognize it, admit, and apologize for the sake of peace, and not for the sake of manipulation to get what you want.
balmoralgal Brilliant. Ramona, if you read anything, read the above post. Copy and paste it onto a card. When you feel like your going down the wrong road, pull it out and read.
You have many fans dear one. But something is going wrong. Rewind, find your center dearheart... You are a business Woman who many young girls are watching. Do you hear me? I hope so..
Ramona, you are becoming the new "Jill"....tone it down, you are coming off as a loon. Grow up woman, Heather doesn't like you...it's allowed, and you don't have to like her! Be cordial, your antics aren't becoming.
When you watch the show, does any of this ever occur to you???
I am watching the RHONY Marathon and they are showing the episode at Sonja's party and I have to say, you acted like a spoiled brat! The way you were yelling at Sonja (at her party) was absolutely ridiculous. You are yelling at her and then you get to the spot where you don't know what else to say and all that comes out is "WHATEVER,WHATEVER!" That is a word that high school students use not women who are supposed to be so educated. And then all you do is yell and scream. I'm sorry but to me that is not being very classy. Why must you yell all the time? It is getting very annoying and then you say things like "well I invited all of the women to my party but I'm not sure Heather got it." Hello, do you think she's dumb? That was so obvious that anyone would have been able to see where you were going with that! Grow up and for God's sake PLEASE STOP SCREAMING AND YELLING SO MUCH!!! IT REALLY MAKES YOU LOOK LOW CLASS. YOU CAN GET YOUR POINT ACROSS CALMLY AND RESPECTFULLY WITHOUT GETTING ALL BENT OUT OF SHAPE WITH EYES BULGING AND VEINS POPPING OUT ALL OVER!! I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT'S IN STORE FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON. OH BOY, I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING RIDE!!!
i think you keep the show alive Ramona! Hey, can you get them to bring back Jill and Alex and get rid of these boring new broads lol!
Linda_M NOOOO! Not ALEX, that mouth never stopped moving! She was always correcting everyone. It was manic and weird. And LuAnn, gosh, I would ADORE someone to knock her off her pedestal. I WILL, come hire me ;), but I am a San Francisco Housewife. sigh...
I really think that if "I am what I am" is your motto, then you should maybe start accepting other people for how they are- they are what they are. I am sure they think to themselves "I am what I am" as well. If you want to be accepted the good with the bad then you need to do the same in return with other people.
OH, my. Your reaction to Aviva's leg was hysterical (if you were a 5 year old). Coming from a 55 year old, it was tragic. Your comments about Heather were hilarious, if you were a 'tween. Then again, you're not. You are an adult woman. Act like it. Stop gossiping about a woman you've known for 10 minutes who clearly didn't care for your obnoxiousness and move on with your silly life. Watching you hold court at the Learning Annex was classic. Your speech began with you toasting YOURSELF. Then you gave a halting, hackneyed phrase, "If, I Can Do It --- So Can You". Did you think that up all by yourself? HAHA! The audience's expression looked as though they either wanted their money back or they were expecting Bethenny Frankel instead. You probably went over like a lead balloon. More's the pity...
Ramona I can't believe you don't see from past shows that you talk non-stop sometimes also!!!! In fact I think you talk more than Heather!! Back off the wine I think. Otherwise I think you are a straight shooter and I love your antics. Never a dull moment around you.
I love you ramona! Last episode was such a snooze because you weren't in London. who the hell wants to watch Heather's mean girl infomercial???
yummy!!! HOLLA!! daahling! (in a fake british accent) pumpkin head! you couldn't pay me to go on that trip!
i know your feelings were hurt...excluding just one person, especially when you're on a show and paid to be together - is mean. but look at all that you have - a happy marriage, a beautiful daughter and a successful career. you do have it all...remember that! at this point heather has made it clear that she doesn't want to form a friendship. so move on. be nice and cordial, but don't beg her to like you...that's what she wants.
you're still my favorite..you show your true colors and you are who you are!
Ramona, I liked you and your housband for calling out Jill on her BS. Next to Jill you looked sane but next to the other girls you look absolutely insane. There is a different between being rude and being direct. I would say Lisa from BH is direct but you are just rude. Putting other people down is just RUDE.
Love Ramona Singer. Checked out your talk at the Learning Annex. You were wonderful. Cheers!
Ramona, you're a sharp woman. I was embarrassed for you during the dinner with Aviva and Reid, that all you could do was gossip about Heather, Heather, Heather. YOU looked insecure and ridiculous. Surely there were plenty of other things to talk about at dinner?
I think your the one that is insecure. Heather can go on with her life without mentioning you but you on the other hand cannot. Bottom line is if you were there the atmosphere would not be as light.
